OUR FOUNDATION 

Man, since his beginning in the Dark Ages, has required three major 
things in his battle for existence against the powers of Nature and the 
Elements. 

Even to this modern day, these three requisites, food, shelter, and 
clothing, are still in demand. 

To instruct men to gain proficiency in the manufacture of cloth- 
ing materials, is the aim and the foundation of the New Bedford Tex- 
tile School.

FOREWORD 

The Fabricator Staff sincerely expresses its hearty thanks and apprecia- 
tion to Mr. Acomb, members of the faculty, and fellow students, 
without whose able assistance this publication of the 
history and activities of the Class of 1931 could 
not have been achieved. 



PRINCIPAL WILLIAM SMITH 

The Fabricator, in behalf of the Senior Class, 
expresses its appreciation and acknowledgment of 
the untiring and invaluable service rendered the 
school and the textile world by the head of the New 
Bedford Textile School. We most heartily wish Mr. 
Smith many more years of excellent health and hap- 
piness in which to continue this good work.

HISTORY OF THE SCHOOL 

THE New Bedford Textile School was established by the Trustees of The 
New Bedford Textile School, and incorporated in accordance with Chap- 
ter 475, Acts of 1895. 

The school opened for day students October 16th, 1899 and for evening 
students October 23rd, 1899. The number of students attending the first 
year 1899-1900 was 11 day students and 183 evening students. 

The first building consisted of three stories with a small basement. The 
main building was 64 x 100 ft., with an annex of 1 2 x 67 ft., on the ground 
floor for engine and boiler room. The power was a small 40 HP. motor with 
rope and belt transmissions. 

In 1902 the Knitting and Chemistry departments were added. The 
second addition was made in 1905. built on the south side, carrying the build- 
ing to the Maxfield Street line. This addition was necessary due to the rapidly 
increasing number of day and evening students, and called for a rearrangement 
of the departments and equipment. 

The third addition was finished in 1911, joined to the original building 
by a bridge and a tunnel. This addition was properly equipped for theoretical 
and practical training in the Mechanical and Chemistry courses, and also con- 
tains class rooms for lecture work. 

The fourth addition came in 1922. The Maxfield Street building being 
carried West to the line of the original building. This addition was three 
stories high, the first floor giving the C. Y. P. department an ample addition 
where spinning frames, winders and twisters were located. The second floor 
was added to the Weave room, and finally the third floor included a fine gym- 
nasium. 

The school at the present time is one of the most sanitary, ample and 
efficient textile schools in the country. The present building contains 50 rooms 
with over 100,000 square feet of floor space. The School now has more than 
$275,000 worth of equipment, about one half of which has been either do- 
nated or loaned. 

The New Bedford Textile School in the year 1930-31 had 141 day 
students and 1459 evening students.

CHEMISTRY, DYEING, and FINISHING DEPARTMENT 

THIS department, under the efficient management of its head, Mr. Busby, 
ably assisted by Messrs. Brooks, Weymouth, and Broadfoot, has become 
one of the most popular in the school. 

The department contains two fine, modern laboratories, thoroughly 
equipped for dyeing and general chemistry work, also containing a weighing 
room, a lecture room and a print room. In the basement of the new building 
are various types of converting and finishing machines by means of which a 
complete practical course in finishing fabrics is obtained. 

Here it is that the 'Tech' student discovers for himself the intricacies of 
Organic Chemistry, delves into the inaccuracies of Quantitative and explores 
throughout the complicated and amazing system of Qualitative Analysis. 
Modern methods of standard dyeing operations, as well as the use of several 
of the older ways of applying dyestuffs, are included in the complete courses 
offered by this modern department. 

The graduate student, turned out into the business world by this de- 
partment is thoroughly equipped with chemical knowledge and applied theory 
as well as practical ability.

THE WEAVING AND DESIGNING DEPARTMENT 

THESE two departments work in conjunction with one another and both are 
of the utmost importance, resulting in the wide spread records of the suc- 
cesses of its general cotton students. 

Mr. Holt is the head of the Designing Department. He is ably assisted 
in his work by Mr. Beardsworth and Mr. Fawcett. Here the student has an 
opportunity to display his originality and ability in creating both cloth and 
color schemes. 

The color course under Mr. Holt's expert tutorage, gives to the students 
a complete general knowledge of color, in both values, and chroma; that they 
will probably meet with when later engaged in some form of textile work. 

Mr. Acomb has charge of the Weaving Department. He, with the assist- 
ance of Messrs. Beardsworth and Fawcett, gives the student extensive and 
thorough practical knowledge of the operation, working parts, and care of the 
various and intricate machines on the second floor. Box looms, Jacquards, and 
the latest automatic bobbin or shuttle changing looms are included in the equip- 
ment of this up to date weave room. 

The department has also the machinery necessary for warp preparation 
in both cotton and rayon, making the weaving department a modern and 
complete unit. Many of the looms and equipment have been generously and 
helpfully donated by manufacturers of weaving machinery. 

A student is able because of the completeness of the courses, to plan his 
own ideas onto the design sheet, make the necessary drafts, and then weave the 
pattern with the filling required. Sometimes his results are viewed with pride, 
and alas, sometimes with chagrin. With perseverance and hard work all dif- 
ficulties are sooner or later mastered, and the results when taken off the loom 
are viewed with the pride of the most cherished article imaginable. A prod- 
uct of "The School Worth While."

THE COTTON YARN PREPARATION DEPARTMENT 



S 



TRONG yarn of uniform structure is the foundation of all good cloth. 



The head of this department, Mr. Holden, and his assistant Mr. Gourley 
give the students a very thorough understanding of both the theoretical and 
practical methods used in modern practice. 

This department is equipped with the best of preparatory machinery and 
the student is required to do all the necessary settings and to operate these 
machines, which gives him a very practical understanding of the detail required. 

An excellent testing room adds much to the importance of this depart- 
ment. This room has automatically controlled humidifiers and is equipped 
with the latest in testing machines. 

With this modern machinery and practical methods of operation and the 
very willing assistance and guidance of the instructors, the students are enabled 
to carry out to the industry many new and very practical ideas.

THE MECHANICAL DEPARTMENT 

STEAM engineering, electricity, mill engineering, mechanical drawing, machine 
shop and allied subjects such as physics, mechanics; some of these subjects 
are included in every course offered in the school. 

The Mechanical Department consists of two excellent drafting rooms, 
an electrical laboratory, a steam engineering laboratory, a lecture room, and a 
large thoroughly equipped machine shop. 

Oft and anon some major or minor operation is performed upon a loom 
part or a card ailment by the hardv 'Knights of the Oil Bath' in order that some 
immovable piece of machinery in the weaving or C. Y. P. Department may 
soon be in operation again. In the saving of repair bills the Machine shop more 
than pays for itself and its operation in one terms work. 

The zealous and efficient work of Mr. Crompton, head of the department, 
and the assistance of Mr. Bayreuther and Mr. Walton, have brought and kept 
this whole department up to its present standard of completeness and efficiency.

THE KNITTING DEPARTMENT 

THE Knitting Department under the capable and efficient guidance of Mr. 
Manning has developed into a department noted for its extensive work in 
knitting and textile research. The growth of the artificial silk industry and 
the ever increasing importance of testing and research work have given this 
division of the school an inexhaustive field. 

This department gives the students a thorough knowledge of the knitting 
industry and also extensive study in microscopic and textile testing which is 
playing such an important part in the textile world at the present time. This 
department is composed of three separate units namely the knitting room, rayon 
winding room and testing laboratory. 

The knitting room is undoubtedly better equipped than any Textile school 
in the country. It contains all the up to date hosiery, winding, underwear and 
sewing machines which are on the market. Many new creations are being 
turned out daily in this room which meet with ready favor with all the students, 

The rayon winding room is the newest addition to the school. It has all 
the latest winding machines which wind rayon from skeins into every con- 
ceivable form such as cops, cones, bobbins and spools. This room is used jointly 
by the knitting and weaving department for the winding of rayon for the two 
departments. 

The testing laboratory has steadily grown until it now contains all the 
newest testing machines and microscopes which enable the students to study 
the physical and chemical compositions of all the fibres. In this lab Mr. 
Manning conducts much of its research work which has helped greatly in pro- 
claiming the merits of the school. One of the features of this laboratory is the 
microscopic camera which Mr. Manning constructed. With this piece of ap- 
paratus microscopic views are photographed which help the student to view the 
physical construction of fibres and fabrics.

HISTORY OF THE SENIOR CLASS 

THE Class of 1931 become Alumni at the completion, in June, of their 
three year sojourn at Tech. 

What years those have been; glorious years of happy fellowship and 
study. Our learning has not been confined wholly to books and lectures, for 
such a period of congenial living and working together has established in us a 
sincere understanding and intimate regard for one another. We complete our 
schooling knowing that without the atmosphere of sincere friendliness which 
every student in the class has tried to create, those three years would not have 
been one half so pleasant to remember. 

Let us at this time, reverse our thoughts and focus our minds on a cer- 
tain date, namely September 12, 1928, a date which at the time did not seem 
very important, but which now is unparalleled in our histories. Who in the 
class can ever forget that date? It heralded our entrance into the New Bedford 
Textile School. 

How weak and docile we appeared as we crowded into the library to enroll 
and acquaint ourselves with the school routine. The upper classmen were the 
acme of perfection in our eyes, being on a plane far removed from us. We 
were to be the objects of many of their jokes and pranks. 

The school and its instructors impressed us as being a world apart from 
the regular run of things, and soon created in us a spirit of dignity and vast- 
ness. We found also in our exploits that we were the equal of the lordly Sen- 
iors and Juniors. In a short time we also had developed that nonchalant air 
of worldliness and self-assurance. 

The class in its first year contributed generously to the support of all 
school organizations. The majority of us pledged to one or the other of the 
Fraternities. What a 'whacking' time we had in our 'periods of penace' a(s 
pledges. The newly organized soccer team of '28-'29 was successful in winning 
the Southern New England banner and was represented in our class by Captain 
Cook, Warburton, and Gardner. "Red" Peirce, "Pres" Cook, "Brad" Stevens, 
"Pete" Warburton, Francis Galligan and "Jimmie" Gardner, also played Bas- 
ketball either on the Varsity or Reserves during this season. 

After passing our first Midyear exams we went through the second term 
like hotcakes to reach our Finals, and, then vacation. 

We returned in the Fall to find Cook, Gardner, Potel, and Warburton 
back at their old berths on the Soccer pitch. Peirce, Cook, Stevens, Gardner, 
and Warburton again went out for the hoop game and played consistently. 
In the Spring under the supervision of Cook, a fine Tennis team was developed 
with Peirce, Gardner, and Potel filling in most of the berths on a very successful 
team. 



(23) 



THE FABRICATOR 193 1 

Our class officers for the first and second years have been the same, namely; 
Warburton — President; Cook — Vice President; Treasurer — Peirce; Secretary- — 
Gardner. 

The last and most important year of our school careers arrived, all too 
soon — Our Senior Year. At last we had gained our well earned and de- 
served inheritance. We were truly masters of all that we surveyed; suave, fun- 
loving, yet dignified and strong enough to uphold our well established prestige. 

Our Senior Dance was a great success both socially and financially. The 
credit for the affair is due to the committee consisting of Cook, Warburton, 
and Deptula. 

Our officers for this most important of years were: President — Gard- 
ner; Vice-President — Cook; Treasurer — Peirce; Secretary — Sanders. 

We still continued to give to the teams most of their athletes. In soccer 
the same old gang with a few new faces gave the team another successful year. 
The boys represented were Capt. Cook, Warburton, Gardner, Peirce and 
Potel. The basketball team captained by "Red" Peirce was very successful 
in winning nine out of fifteen starts. Cook, Warburton, Gardner, Galligan 
and Stevens rounded out our share of the squad and played Stella basketball 
for the Alma Mater. In Tennis Captain Cook, Peirce, Gardner, Potel and 
Poremba were available so the success of the 1931 team was assured. 

After studying diligently so as to master our subjects in order to have time 
for social events of the last month or so, came an event to be long remem- 
bered to all of us. Our Prom was held in the gayly bedecked Gymnasium, 
by which action we hope to establish a precedent for future classes. An excel- 
lent dance program was enjoyed as were the various novelties presented. 

Commencement, with all its dignified formalities, fittingly crowns our 
careers at Tech. Armed with our trusty diplomas we will sally forth into a 
cruel and hard business world to take it by the ears and soon show it that 
our knowledge is of the best. 

To our successors we bequeath the school traditions and honor, to up- 
hold as we have strived to do with the best of our ability. 

To the School itself, and its instructors in the various departments, 
we express a hearty and sincere appreciation of all they have meant to us, and 
thank them for that which they have so painstakingly done to insure us 
success in our chosen futures. 

Each member of the Class of 1931, I am sure, sincerely wishes each of 
his fellow classmates a highly successful career and expresses a desire that he 
strives to embody in his life the seemingly obvious motto of our class, "Suc- 
cess is the result of wholesome living, sound reasoning, and persistent labor."

"Abe"

Art Editor, Fabricator Chem. Society 

Tennis Manager 1931, Soccer (3). 

THREE long years ago, young Lochinvar came out of the West (End) . 
With the sun glinting on his golden head and a sweet smile dimpling his 
rugged cheeks, A. Durfee Damon, affectionately known as "Abe" arrived 
at Tech. This seemingly timid young man certainly was a surprise package. 

Damon was all that was required to make Peirce happy. Their opposite 
natures certainly attracted each to the other and cemented their mutual alliance. 

Scarcely a day has passed in three years that "Abe" hasn't threatened to 
exterminate "Red", but overcome by Peirce's disarming smile and invulner- 
able defense, has smoked the pipe of peace with his arch friend and foe. "Abe" 
and "Red" are the Damon and Pythias of the class; what one cannot accom- 
plish, the other can, and the combination is unexcelled. 

Damon is of the firm, masculine type with an unconquerable heart, 
seemingly invincible to all attacks of the fair sex. But, hist; out in the fast- 
ness of his beloved west, it is rumored, resides his "Belle Ideal." 

A saying popular on the ice any winter at Buttonwood Park is "As Damon 
skates, so should all men." That boy certainly can make the ice eat out of 
his hand or, literally, off his feet. 

Damon by his level headed reasoning and earnest endeavor in his studies, 
his constant striving to establish a congenial companionship with his fellow 
classmates, certainly deserves a whole hearted wish for a very successful and 
happy future.

HAVE you ever noticed a fellow wearing a leather coat, and hanging onto 
a collegiate looking pipe; glide out of the front door of the school. 
That's "Walter J." 

Our little Boy Blue is quite a boy, ask anyone, even himself. Walter 
is always a ready participant in any joke or playful prank. He has a good 
sense of humor and takes it all in fun, if the joke is on him. 

"Walt" just makes that ole" cotton fibre eat out of his hand. He tried 
at first to feed oats to the Textile mules but after a bad case of bites, he found 
out that they thrive best on cotton. Fussy things! 

Only two accomplishments can be traced to this boy's door, but why 
look for others? His specialty is eating peanuts (we wonder who eats his 
shells) , and sheiking the French Belles. 

During his course at Tech, "Walt" has proved a good student and a 
steady thorough worker. 

May you carry on in the Textile world as successfully as at Tex, Walter. 
We wish you most pleasant memories of your term at the "mill."

Manager of Baseball (3) 

THREE years ago, a lad, fired with the the ambition to go places and do 
mighty things, discarded his old bone knitting needles and signed up at 
Tech, to absorb all the knowledge he could obtain from Papa Manning con- 
cerning the modern methods of knitting. 

This sober looking lad, with the fighting cut to his jaw, is none other 
than Francis Galligan, Esquire, assistant instructor in knitting. "Gal" the 
only senior knitting student runs the department with the aid of Mr. Manning. 
He is a genius who supplies the sport teams with socks and jerseys, etc. 

"Gal" has established a reputation at Tech for fighting spirit and earnest 
endeavor. He has played two seasons of varsity baseball and basketball and 
has certainly earned the highest regard of the rest of the fellows at school. 

His favorite pastime is to leave his beloved knitting, migrate to the Lab 
and engage in lengthy discussions on sports, meanwhile stirring some socks 
in a dye-cup and wondering when Mr. Manning will discover his rendezvous. 

We are sure, however, that "Gal's" spirit and progressive attitude will 
help greatly in his climb to success at his chosen profession. 

Good luck, and best wishes, "Gal".

AHEM! Egad! Entrez, "George Oliver", a young man who ambled down 
from the barren fastness of the West End to make the unruly cotton fibre 
perform to his satisfaction. 

"Jimmy" is the picture of quiet, scholarly dignity, but the twinkle in 
his hazel eyes suggests a personage bubbling over with mirth and good nature, 
only being held in check by a forceful will. 

This dignified, fun loving scholar, President of the Class of 1931, has 
certainly set a mark for coming presidents to shoot at. He ranks among the 
leaders in scholarship and has played two seasons with the Baseball and Tennis 
teams besides taking a crack at Soccer and Basketball. "Jim Oliver" is a 
tireless worker and worthy leader of any class. 

Besides all this, "Oliver" is the tourist of the congregation, having trav- 
elled New England extensively with his center of attraction at Worcester. 
His hair may be thinning and getting grey on top but he still charms the 
"Belles Femmes". 

As President of our Class and Business Manager of the Fabricator "Jim" 
has shown an initiative and tireless application to studies and school activities. 

Here's hoping, "Jim" that your ship, "Success" comes sailing rapidly in, 
once you start your life's career.

New Bedford, Mass. Special C. Y. P. 

'"Phe writer of that popular ballad "A Great Big Man from the South" 
1 must have heard of Joe Lopes. Joe is a big man and he's from the South 
End of this fair City. 

Joe has not advertised his presence very openly at Tech. He's been con- 
tent to be a good pal and friend to all, during his stay at Tex. Hardly a day 
passes that he does not arrive beaming with a broad smile. One never sees him 
scowl, he's a specialist in chasing gloom away. 

Latest news flashes from the C. Y. P. department, state that Joe is making 
the venerable cotton step lively and do his darndest to obey this new master. 
Under this masterful control and superb handling, cotton preparation and 
manufacturing have become as simple as falling off a log. 

Joe is quite a combination; a piugger and earnest worker, reticent about 
broadcasting his ability, nevertheless, a congenial and sincere friend to all of 
the class. 

We heartily wish you all the luck and fulfillment of all your ambitions 
for the future, Joe.

Baseball (2), (3). 

THIS example of perfect innocence hails from somewhere in the general direc- 
tion of North Fairhaven. And, oh! Look girls, look at that hair! 

Mike does not have a great deal to say concerning himself, but we have a 
suspicion that beneath the unruffled composure of this puzzling young man 
there courses a very keen mind and modest nature. 

Mike is always willing to shoulder his share of the class burdens and we 
have noticed that no matter how difficult the task, his ready smile always 
flashes. 

He is surely a varsity man where the fair sex are concerned. Salem and 
New Bedford seem to be his main fields of conquest. 

Besides impressing us as a modest, conscientious student, Mike showed 
his prowess by playing on the ball team for two years. 

We predict that Mike's ability to think and reason out situation after 
situation before acting, will enable him to gain a position of value and service 
in the textile world.

Advertising Manager, Fabricator

OUT of the maze of roads and blanket of impregnable haze that enshrouds 
the aristocratic village of Middleboro there came, many summers ago, 
an exceedingly young and innocent personage. What a change the years have 
wrought. Ralph certainly has developed, both physically and otherwise. 
He is six feet two inches in height and weighs two hundred pounds. 

Ralph left us for a short hitch in the army. Having worked up to Brig- 
adier General (by correspondence lessons) he returned to Tech to complete his 
career of crime. 

If you are walking through the Chem laboratory and you suddenly con- 
front two enormous toe-caps, don't clench your fists and prepare to die; 
light a Murad, trace the toe-caps back to the heels and glance upwards to find 
all your aggressiveness melt. A pair of pleasant smiling eyes and a keen, frank 
countenance beam down on you. It's he; you've bumped into our Ralph. 

He's a whiz at Mechanical Engineering. His uncanny ability to persuade 
stubborn machinery in the finishing department to percolate has stamped him 
a "Boy Mechanic". 

Ralph is our idea of a perfect advertising manager. He certainly pulled 
in the money for the "Fabricator". 

And, OH! Last but not least, Ralph can certainly move his spacious a- 
voirdupois around a dance floor, with agility plus. Just ask any of the girls. 

We all join in a sincere wish for a happy and successful future for the 
best sport of the class. We know that Ralph will tackle life in his characteristic 
business-like and brainy manner and throw it for a loss.

^ t3 ED " ma y be the only representative of the auburn haired clan in the 
|\ class, but he certainly has made red a very popular color during his 
stay at Tech. "Red" at Tech signifies six feet two inches of jovial, fun loving, 
versatile humanity. 

"Red" has excelled at sports for three years playing basketball and tennis. 
Recently he thought he would try soccer and as results show did not do such 
a bad job as a goalie at that. "Lighthouse" delights in going over to the 
office early mornings to get the chemistry division its mail. 

The fiery adornment of "Red's" head stands out like a lighthouse in the 
fog, when the air gets murky and dark gassy clouds gather in the lab. During 
lulls in class work (oh yes, there are moments) "Red" usually fastens his 
deadly toe hold upon Damon's neck and throws himself for a loss. 

"Red" does not at first strike a stranger as being capable of any cares or 
seriousness in this world. Yet confer with the charming and exceedingly 
pleasant young "stenog" in our school office. What a revelation! 

Everett's frivolous and pleasant, carefree smile, coupled with his congen- 
ial and helpful spirit of comradeship, has won him a lasting place in our 
thoughts. 

We wish him the best of luck and a complete fulfillment of his every 
hope.

Manager of Basketball (3). 

WE now present our premier designer. Whether it's designing cloth or 
automobiles, "Al" has the call. He is a very quiet, gentlemanly chap. 
You can only hear him holler ten blocks away and he delights in pulling your 
necktie out or bashing your new hat in. It is to this young criterion of fash- 
ion that the Textile Goose has showered her affections. 

"Al" found an outlet for his boisterous zeal on the soccer lots. He also 
"managered" this year's hoop team. 

When he isn't designing "the latest from Paris" "Al" is out at the Acush- 
net Grange stepping around. That boy has hot feet from morn till night to 
morn again. He's never so happy as when he is "shaking the leg" and even in 
an Institution like Textile he's quite the rage. 

Despite his seemingly frivolous and happy go lucky path through school, 
"Al" has mastered his course perfectly. If some designing young lady does 
not steal our embryo designer he will make a name for himself. Ach, yes. 

May your path through life be filled with happiness and the fruits of 
victory, "Al".

Jacques M. L. Potel 

"Jack" 

Rouen, France General 

Asst. Advertising Mgr. Delta Kappa Phi 

Soccer (2), (3) ; Tennis (2), (3). 

THREE years ago, our Jack, concluding that work was an unnecessary evil, 
sailed from gay Paree and signed up at Tech. 

Jack's characteristic frankness, aided by a pair of laughing eyes and a 
manner foreign to all but "Le Francais", has won him an enviable place in 
the hearts of all his fellow classmates and not a few of the opposite sex. Jack 
certainly made the "Baby Lincoln" a popular and recognized car. 

Not all his time is spent, however, in portraying a young Frenchman 
at work or at play. He has established a well deserved rank in scholarship and 
also in athletics, having won his positions on both Soccer and Tennis teams for 
the past two years. 

Jack's ready wit and irresistible humor banish all blues and always keeps 
the class in good spirits. He may be found at any time either in the weave 
room praying devoutly over one of his original designs, or touring the school 
in search of that very elusive article, soap. He takes great delight in formu- 
lating heated arguments and there, with the aid of his strident, rising voice, 
he smothers all competition and wins by a couple of breaths. 

Evidences of his ready ability to gain a thorough knowledge of his 
studies through persistent study, are stepping stones to his inevitable success. 

Here's to you, Jack. We wish you "Bon Voyage" when you again heed 
the call of Gay Paree.

Antonio Said 

Tony 



Arequipa, Peru 



General 
Delta Kappa Phi 



WE wish to present at this time, ladies and gentlemen, none other than 
Antonio Said, hailing from Peru, a quiet little equatorial country. 
Tony, tired of that quaint South American custom of throwing lead at one 
another, packed up his bags and came to Tech, for the three years of seeming 
quiet and rest. 

Tony soon developed a passion for making machinery do unorthodox 
things. His specialty is performing a barrel roll with a loom, making shuttles 
fly around the room like so many bees. He has absolutely no trouble in as- 
sembling a comber; his problem being to rid himself of the surplus parts. 

In the classroom Tony is always one jump ahead of the instructors. He 
may come from a bull fighting country but nevertheless, Mr. Acomb can throw 
him for a loss any day. "Dot's too mooch", says he. 

His quiet unassuming manner might lead one to think he is easy going. 
However, during his stay at Tech, Tony has impressed us with his whole- 
hearted serious application to his studies. His great ambition is to make 
"Good". 

In his makeup there is one weakness and also a Ford roadster. He has 
often been observed riding his weakness around in this model car. 

The class heartily wishes Tony the fulfillment of his ambitions, with 
much success. Buena Ventura, amigo.

WHEN "Stan" left the N. B. High School to enter the worthy Textile 
Institute, an advance notice would have perhaps warned Mr. Busby to 
get all the glassware out of sight. Such, however, was not the case, and plenty 
of fine beakers and graduates now are not. "Stan" in his course has earned 
the crown of the champion beaker- breaker of the school. 

Aside from this, the fellows have found Stanley a fine companion and a 
ready supporter of all school activities. Many a jibe directed at this young 
man over some example of poor tailoring has been returned ten-fold. "Stan" 
with characteristic loyalty refuses to be downed however great the odds. We 
hear that "Stan" has already found a job. His refusal to accept it was due no 
doubt to the experience necessary to play that part. 

Contrary to the others of the class, this Textilian is seemingly impervious 
to Cupid's dart. It has been rumored, however, that outside the "Chemistry 
Sextet" there is a "One". 

To drop the levity, in his stay at Tech, Stan has exerted himself to the 
utmost, mastered all his subjects in fine shape, and now awaits with confidence 
the grapple with a cold business world. His dogged perseverance and ac- 
quired knowledge can not go under, so success looms upon his horizon in 
brilliant colors. 

Good luck, "Stan", and may the cup of joy for you be filled to over- 
flowing.

THE saying is "Good things come in small packages". "Brad" certainly 
justifies this adage. He's our idea of a good, little man. In his small wiry 
frame is combined more pep and energy than in any other of the class. 

The instructors get grey-haired trying to create work sufficient in magni- 
tude and perplexity to keep "Brad" occupied. If he isn't kept busy, "Brad" 
would be touring the school seeking fistic competition or visiting Mr. Manning 
to enquire about the recent shortage of good footwear. 

"Brad" must have a contract to test out all socks made in the knitting 
rooms for he certainly has sported some ritzy foot goods before the envious 
eyes of the "Lab". 

In other ways has he been active, also. Three years of varsity baseball 
and two of basketball is his record. What a steady hand he has been in the 
rough games on the diamond! 

Besides being lively and aggressive, "Brad" has shown us that he is a 
good student, not sensational nor yet a genius; but a man who, once his mind 
is set on a problem, completes it accurately. 

The haircut that follows this boy everywhere has been a source of many 
good natured jokes. He has even been asked in German what his moniker was. 
Nevertheless, it characterizes him, a fine, upstanding fellow ready to battle if 
provoked, but congenial and earnest in work in times of peace. 

Good luck and Success, "Brad".

West Warwick, R. I. General 

Asst. Business Manager Delta Kappa Phi 

Soccer (1), (2), (3); Basketball (2), (3). 

( ( T^ETE" came from Holyoke High School to the mill institute to take up 
I the study of the tricky cotton fibre. He soon discovered that Textile!s 
mules were fed upon cotton and not oats, and, strangely enough, that cards can 
neither be stacked or misdealt. 

The bitter cold of his first winter in these climes soon drove all yearning 
thoughts of the green fields and quiet nooks of Warwick from "Pete's" head, 
and brought him to realize the task before him. 

Peter has played three years on Basketball and Soccer teams. In between 
times he has found ample time to establish himself as a good scholar and am- 
bitious student. 

To see "Pete" without his chubby face lighted up with a smile would 
be akin to meeting a leopard without his spots; for the Lord of Warwick 
always has a pleasant smile and greeting for everyone. 

When "Pete" and his pal, "Jack", step out to "trip the light fantastic", 
they certainly display a technique and initiative surprisingly well balanced. 

We are positive that, whatever "Pete's" association with Textiles after 
graduation, his work will embody the same characteristics as that of his school 
days, with his ability to master any situation and his unlimited capacity for 
knowledge. 

Best of Luck, old topper.

"Youngski" 
Dorchester, Mass. General 

MANY moons ago, "Eddie" opened his eyes upon life's stage and lustily 
announced his debut for success. As such things do, he soon grew to 
manhood and while riding his rooster along the streets of Shanghai, happened 
to see a billboard telling what a whiz of a place New Bedford was. Eddie 
decided to take a chance (Steve Brody did) so packing a clean shirt and his 
mahogany chop-sticks, started for the "Bug Town." 

"Youngski" registered for a three year cruise through the cotton industry 
via the New Bedford Textile route. He proved a source of fun and amusement 
in his first valiant efforts to grasp the intricacies of the language and work at 
Tech. Soon, however, "Eddie's" perseverance won out and he could talk as 
suavely and surely as any of us. What a style that boy has developed! He can 
act the modest, dignified scholar or can transform himself into a happy-go- 
lucky, humorous man of the world. 

"Eddie's" perseverance and thoughtful application to his task of gaining 
complete mastery of the English language and his courses at Tech have gained 
him a place of recognition in the school. 

I am sure we all join in wishing "Eddie" success in life and pleasant 
memories of his stay at Textile.

Sitting at his bench in the hall he causes sweet and enchanting sounds to issue

THIS smart looking young man, he with the mustaches, is none other than 
Adrian St. Louis. His little "mush" the fruit of three years patient culti-

of intrigue and charm it lends to his features. Without it he would be just a 
man, with it he is a marked man. Ask "les belles mamselles" — they have 
designs. 

St. Louis does not say much but he probably thinks a lot. He may 
be often seen smiling, knowingly, at our horse play or foolish pranks. 

They tell us that these calm, dignified, mustached men are very set in 
their ways. We wager, however, that somewhere there is a someone who moves 
Adrian to reveal his other self, so seldom presented to us. 

Adrian has made many friends in the class, through his calm, comradely

CLASS PROPHECY 

IN keeping with his acquired knowledge gathered in the back and shady cor- 
ners of the Textile School, the writer, hurrying over to the office to smoke 
a friendly cigar with friend "Bill" and discuss the latest upward trend in cement 
overshoes for perspiring clog dancers, stumbles over the conglomeration of Mr. 
Holden's cotton waste and falling, hits his head on the picker frame. 

Various colored constellations come and go before his startled eyes and 
there is one star that bothers him. Suddenly this vicious star grabs him by 
the neck and carries him off to the world where all little Textile graduates go. 
This is his report just come in over the Mars-Venus-Earth telegraphic connec- 
tions through broadcasting station TEX — 'nuff said. 

Upon starting my strange journey I stopped off to get a drink at a local 
bar-room on a stationary comet and found "Nap" Cadorette, would ya b'lieve 
it? Nappy was making money hand over fist and marrying women twice as 
fast. Bring 'em Young with twenty wives was only a drop in the bucket to 
"Nap". Traveling resumed, I entered into a cold region and lo and behold — 
there was Damon skating round and round with much "Grace" and little 
"Ease". "Walt" Deptula was there also selling hot-dogs covered with glue. 
"Walt" always did go in for extremes. 

I was soon tired, (not with Fiskes) and getting off my steed I proceeded 
to walk towards the city in the distance. All at once I fell head over heels into 
a deep hole. Down about forty fathoms I landed on "Ralphous" Northway 
a'digging up all the knowledge he could shovel. What a hole in the Book of 
Knowledge that boy has made! 

Over in the city I found the "Phantom Five" still playing Chess under 
the palms. Potel, Stevens, Lopes, Morris, and Poremba sat gazing at their 
board. It was rumored that "Brad" actually moved once last year, no kidding. 
In the tonsorial parlor on the corner, Adrian St. Louis fixed me up in fine 
shape. Suddenly the door burst in with a crack, and there stood "Red" 
Peirce all panting hot. He was still chasing after the morning mail. 

Outside I bumped into "Pete" himself, the big butter and yegg man of 
the community. With his vast knowledge of the whereabouts and actions of 
the various ones it' did not take me long to find others. I learned that "Joe" 
Dowd was pitching again, only this time it was soup in the corner cafe. "Eddie" 
Youngski was still a guzzling the ole choply-suey in great style. Just then a 
big car goes rolling by and in it, big as life, was none other than "Tony" Said, 
the new imperial boss man. He always did envy Bill Smith so Tony hired

1931 THE FABRICATOR 



Mike Mendrala and Paul Stiles, two yegg men who were square shooters to 
set him up a nice lil revolution. 'Thot's too mooch". 

To keep the sun from beating on my throbbing head, I entered into a 
shop and was furnished with a funny degadget by none other than "Smiling 
Jim". He took my last cent and Stan Sanders must have got a cut of it for 
he took all the measurements. 

Feeling blue over this affair, I wandered off in the direction of the sounds 
of music and entering a torrid night club found "Jim" Payne banging on a set 
of tomato cans, — yes, Campbell's. Behind the orchestra with just an ear 
showing I saw Francis Galligan, the slick sleuth for news. An event not on 
the program that was not billed was when some wise galloot held up the place. 
I thought it was "Pres" Cook from the size of his ears, and I could laugh at 
that hombro for trying to get my dough. 

Just then I hears the sound of a deep cruel voice in my ears offering to 
beat me up, so I awakes up with a ierk and a terrible headache, and runs lick- 
ety split to the Lab to get away from Brad Stevens what's a chasing me.

SOPHOMORE CLASS 

CHEMISTRY 

SEPTEMBER of 1930 brought back fourteen of the 1932 class survivors. 
And how! We started the new term with a bang, and a loud bang at 
that. The way those new condensers were bouncing around, it looked as 
though we would not get back even the first installment on a postage stamp 
at the end of the term. 

Well, we were all acquainted with one another, anyhow. Oh, yes. 
We started right off by keeping our drawers locked up at all times. We learned 
at least this from experiences of the year previous. 

Our star athletes were again in the lime-light this year. Hotte, Wright, 
and Dubiel on the soccer field were unexcelled, with Hotte also filling the re- 
sponsible position of manager. Then came the basketball season with "Red 
Wright" succeeding in keeping his position on the Team. Wright, also repre- 
sented us on the tennis courts and was very successful in his matches. 

Then came the class elections, and we were fortunate in electing mem- 
bers of this part of the Class to offices as follows: — 



(56) 



19 3 1 THE FABRICATOR 



Wright was elected president; Lafferty, secretary. We then chose two 
more members, Morton and Childs, to the Fabricator staff, one to be our Ed- 
itor-in-chief and the other as Business manager next year. 

On January 14th we ran a successful dance, with Ed Lafferty as chair- 
man of the committee. 

Now for 

THE CLASS ROSTER 

First of all we have Phil Berkman, Mr. Broadfoot's prodigy. This boy 
certainly knew his onions when it came to solving our problems. "Berky" 
was leader of his set as well as in studies, and we hope he continues to be. 

And next we have the fellow who came nearer than anyone to catch- 
ing the Textile Goose — our own Jack Broadmeadow. Jacky is very obliging. 
When we had to dispense with paper towels, he came to the rescue and had 
his hair cut pompadour style. We will always remember him for that. 

"Ray" Childs delight was in kidding Broadmeadow, who always retal- 
iated with a try at a few steps of tap-dancing. When he and Broadmeadow 
started to sing a popular song in harmony, it was time to replenish the fire- 
extinguishers. 

Dennis, the big boy of the class, had the Kroudvirds as his pastime. We 
do not know what he would have done without them when he was hungry. 
If Charlie got fresh, Kroudvird (W. or D. ) would heave an old doughnut, 
and the argument would be squelched. 

Next we have Mark Dubiel. the quiet member of the class, but a star at 
soccer and assistant manager of the basketball team. "Duby" never had much 
to say for himself, but he knew his dyeing. Hotte was Dubiel's delight, and 
if you do not believe this, just ask George himself. 

Here comes the Fairhaven Star in the person of Howard Ober Dutton — 
"our own Betty". Howard was the originator of many fine (?) jokes and 
riddles. Ask him, "Why is a mouse when it spins?", if you can not guess 
the answer yourself. Yes, it's one of his own. 

"Kemp" Howland, the class Beau Brummell, also enjoyed the Kroud- 
vird type of entertainment. He paired with Dennis in this respect. "Kemp" 
is the answer to a maiden's prayer, and we wonder what he does with all the 
hearts he must break. We suggest he give them to the twins to make some 
nice pastry with. 

"Leaping Lena" Hotte comes dancing along now, with his perfect imita- 
tion of a bouncing ball. George is a born actor and a perfect clown. Why 
did he ever take up Chemistry courses? Well, we wish him luck in his achieve- 
ments in chemistry, in dancing, and last but not least, on the drums. 



(57) 



THE FABRICATOR 1931 



Now for the baker-boys themselves, — the Kroudvird Bros., Inc. — 
Willie and Dave. They supply the hungry class with sweet delicacies made 
in their own ovens. Here's Dave's story after being asked if he liked baking; 
"No, I don't eat bacon at all." 

"A Milky Way, please." Up pops Lafferty, the class crooner and Rudy 
Vallee's only rival. Ed likes to play with heavy things, especially Max Roth- 
kop. They will be having a championship wrestling match before' long. 
Everybody give three cheers for the A. O. H. 

Morton, the beaker-breaker, delights in asking Mr. Crompton questions 
in steam. We wonder if he is going to be a steamer or a chemist. Never mind, 
when "Phil" gets that boiler of his going, he has to know a lot of steam, or is 
it steam? 

Max Rothkop, the class Rabbi, was a very sick man this year. He had to 
stay out of school the first day after the Christmas vacation to rest up. He 
is, nevertheless, a chemist. Ask Mr. Brooks, he'll tell you. 

Last but not least comes "Red" Wright, our star athlete. "Red" and the 
basketball court get along fine together, but he and Akin get along still better. 
Why didn't "Red" wear those socks he dyed one day? Everyone makes mis- 
takes so we'll excuse him this time, but he must be more careful in the future. 

That is all for the present, but next year we will return for the last time, 
dignified Seniors, and depart, more molecules to the brain than when we en- 
tered. 

GENERAL 

The second year class is not strongly represented in the General Cotton 
courses, but what few students we have are quite the ritz when it comes to 
jazzing around the looms and pickers. 

Our roster includes four happy-go-lucky chaps who just love a pun; 
especially at the expense of teachers. 

Roy Amaral, the midget of the school, is on the job fixing up his orig- 
inals and also making the parts fly in C. Y. P. We hear that he is quite the 
wrestler but draws a line somewhere. 

Edgar Lachance is our studious representative. Everything Edgar un- 
dertakes is accomplished in his sure, quiet way. Does he know his stuff? 
We'll testify to that. 

Herbert Lindberg, no relation of the Colonel's, makes the third of this 
interesting group. His ambition to displace Mr. Holden as head of the cotton 
department is third only to his ability to bum other fellows fags and drive a 
car.

THE FABRICATOR 



Edwin Perry, rounds out our roll and aside from his school efforts is a 
mighty hunter. With his trusty pea-shooter he has collected a den full of 
skins and trophies; cats, dogs, rats, hats, etc. but as yet no game. How- 
ever, perseverance makes perfect so Ed ought to get something someday. 

MECHANICAL 

Mr. Bayreuther keeps these trusty workmen cooped up in his department 
most of the time, but occasionally they venture up to give Mr. Crompton a 
bad afternoon. 

The group consists of Lynam, McGaughcy, Phinney, and Wojcicki and 
all efforts to show these lads anything in a machine shop avails nothing, for 
they are in a class by themselves. 

DESIGNING 

Last, but by way of importance, first, come our two fair co-eds, Misses 
Hoxie and Taber. This is the Sophomore contribution to the group of four 
ladies present at school. Designing is as pie to them, to say nothing of color, 
weaving, etc. In school spirit they can show us all something; never missing 
a game or tilt if possible to get there. Take heed fellas — they are stealing 
your thunder.

Class of 1933 

FRESHMEN 

WHAT a sombre and fateful day, Monday, September 12, 1930, was for 
the New Bedford Textile School. 

A vast horde of invaders was reported clamoring at the portals of that 
famed institution of learning. 

A rush, a babble of squeaky soprano voices, broken now and then by a 
strident squeal, heralds the entrance of this horde into the school. The Class 
of 193 3 has gained its objective. We belong. Not to the A. O. H. but to the 
rollicking, fun loving, and distinguished student body. 

We next tripped lightly (??) down to the office and there received, in 
exchange for our hard earned shekels, a miscellaneous collection of books, 
sheets, paper and other necessary supplies. 

Then the fun began; fun for us, but misery to the teachers. We were 
soon acquainted with the intricate and frequently spontaneous reactions of 
general chemistry. Mechanical Drawing, and Designing often made us won- 
der whether it would not have been better for us to enroll in the Training 
School for Nurses.

represented among the pledges of both the Delta Kappa and Phi Psi Frater- 
nities. 

A weird week or two of pledgeship and a night of uncanny and some- 
what painful experiences completed our trial and we became "Brothers". Long 
in our memories, however, will remain thoughts of "kindly lifts" and then, 
horror of horrors, those long walks home under the lonely light of the stars. 

We were well represented in athletics by several of our class making the 
various teams. "Billy" Clark, "Ray" Williams, "Bill" McArdle, Gobeil, 
Gero, York, and Anderson made the Basketball squad. Clarke, Demarest and 
McArdle answered the call for soccer and rendered invaluable service to the 
team on the field of play. 

Midyears, the bugbear of all Freshmen, soon loomed on the horizon. We 
got our chance in the "Midyear Exams" to show the instructors just how 
much of their various doctrines we had absorbed during the term. The class 
as a whole passed the exams in fine style and proceeded to enter into new sub- 
jects at the beginning of the Spring term.

FRESHMEN 

As a class we pledge our hearty support to the school and all its programs. 
To the Seniors we extend our heartiest congratulations upon their completion 
of three years of intensive study, and wishes for a very successful future. 

CHEMISTRY 

THE largest and noisiest class ever to take up Chemistry at the Textile School 
rushed into the Lab last September and proceeded to throw beakers and 
glassware around with reckless abandon. 

During our first term we organized a football team and trounced the 
Sophomores in an easy game. We then tackled a team of Seniors and Second 
Year men and after a hard battle came out on top by a margin of one touch- 
down. 

At the completion of the basketball season, we challenged the Senior Chem- 
ists to a game upon the school floor. But alas, our squad was no match for the 
tall hoopsters of the small lab, and all our pockets were emptied to the sum of 
one college ice. To gain some measure of revenge we took on the Senior cotton 
men and were successful in winning our share of the snowy ice cream from 
them.

In all activities of the school the First year chemistry group has taken a 
part. Whether in the line of sports, socials, or Fraternity activities, we lead. 

GENERAL COTTON 

The Freshman Class has a small contingent representing it in the "mull" 
division. A group composed of five members is our quota. Under the expert 
teaching of our instructors we are gathering sums of knowledge in our fight for 
success and our diplomas. 

MECHANICAL 

Trusty mechanics, all. Eight stalwart huskies to keep the shop running full 
time and repair the old worn parts from disabled apparatus around the building. 

Gonsalves represented our division upon the basketball court and Buckles 
upon the soccer pitch. 

Although small in number, our class is great in power and will soon show 
to a gaping world what might lies hidden in the brawny arms of our members.

N upholding the standard of Phi Psi Fraternity as the oldest and largest Tex- 
tile Fraternity, Beta Chapter as represented in the New Bedford Textile 
School is no exception to the rule. At the present time it is composed of thirty 
one members with excellent prospects for a banner year in 1931-32.

1931 THE FABRICATOR 



September with its warm rays, found nine of the old gang back to re- 
sume their studies in the school. Tales of the summer doings were plentiful 
and well aired, but it was not long before we settled down with our regular 
schedule of meetings. 

October, and to be exact, the fourth week, found us ready for the ex- 
hausting yet sportful "Rush Week". The eight week rush agreement fulfilled, 
we turned to the pledging of likely men for the Chapter. The sterling charac- 
teristics and great personality of Phi Psi were again to the fore and twenty were 
pledged. A big feed and fine evening's entertainment was held under the stars 
of Sconticut Neck on November 14th. 

November, the month long to be remembered as the highlight of 
the careers of the Freshmen, ushered in the wearing of the raincoats and the 
carrying of umbrellas. It is not necessary to state that a choice of Luckies, 
Old Golds, Chesterfields or what have you was easy. Sweets were plentiful 
for the upper classmen in the form of Life-Savers. Truly the old adage of 
"Reach for a Life-Saver instead of a Lucky" has some foundation. 

The Chapter participated with Delta Chapter in the third degree and 
thirty two members were put through. After the formal affair was over, an 
enjoyable and plentious banquet and entertainment was partaken of by all 
midst the bright lights of Tiverton, R. I. 

Never will the new bretheren forget the torrid bludgeons wielded by ac- 
tive and alumni members at a choice spot, both geographically and anatomi- 
cally. Long walks on a certain cold morning under the stars will also be 
memories. 

Beta held her annual public dance in Duff's Small Hall, and as is always 
the case, a good time was had by all. 

The fellows this year were outstanding in all branches of the sports en- 
tered into by the school. The fine record of the Soccer Team was due in 
most part to the ability and work of Captain Cook, Hotte, Demarest, Mc- 
Ardle, Dubiel, Clark, Poremba, Munroe, and Gobiel. Hotte was also the 
manager of the squad. The Basketball Team was represented by "Billy" 
Clark, "Pres" Cook, "Bill" McArdle, "Ray" Williams, "Dave" York, Gobiel, 
Anderson, and Munroe. Al Poremba was its manager and Dubiel was the as- 
sistant manager. On the Tennis Team which had a fine season and, incident- 
ally, was undefeated in the season of 1930-31, Phi Psi was upheld by Captain 
Cook and Al Poremba. The school baseball team will find several Beta men 
ready to cavort around the bases for their Alma Mater. 

Mid-years saw us take another candidate into the fold, — Warner. 

On April 10th, an informal smoker and moving picture exhibit was en- 
joyed by a combined gathering of Delta and Boston Alumni men with our- 
selves as hosts. The "Feed Lines" were long and winding but never can they 
be excelled.

Now as the month of May draws to a close the scholastic careers of 
some of the fellows, who. with memories of the good old Frat days at school 
and the Farewell party fresh in their minds, will go out into the business world, 
we. the remaining part of the fold, join in extending to them the best of luck 
and great happiness in the future. We shall strive to carry on as it is left to 
us. "Excelsior" or "Upward and Onward." 

Adios.

THE members of the Delta Kappa Phi Fraternity returned to Tech in the 
Fall of 1930 twenty strong. Enthusiasm was at fever pitch for our annual 
clash with our sworn but nevertheless friendly rivals, the Phi Psi. 

"Rush Week" was the second week in November. We tendered our annual 
opening night smoker and dinner party for prospective pledges and new mem- 
bers at the New Bedford Hotel. What a time we had! A well planned dinner, 
topped off with the entertainment provided, certainly crowned a highly suc- 
cessful evening. 

Initiation of six candidates followed. The six new brothers were Adam 
Tomasik, Richard Crane, Henry Reynolds, Roy Amaral, Joseph Baldwin and 
David Morris. What a sight for sore eyes those six meek looking souls were.

Their blond locks were covered by a wide brimmed, farmer's hat decorated 
with a blue and white ribbon. How natural they looked with aristocratic look- 
ing corn cob pipes projecting from their mouths. The street parade and final 
initiation will linger long in their memories. The candidates did not get 
blisters and red blotches on their skins from sitting on chairs all night, either. 

"Red" Peirce, "Joe" Dowd, "Pete" Warburton, Jacques Potel, and "Red" 
Wright represented us on the soccer team and under the coaching of our Frat 
brother Mr. Beardsworth, helped the team carry through a very successful season. 

Francis Galligan, "Red" Peirce, Warburton, and "Red" Wright all made 
the basketball team, and helped materially in one of the most successful of 
basketball seasons. Peirce captained the team and certainly established him- 
self as a natural cracker-jack center, and a good leader for the team. 

Three of the Frat brothers, Peirce, Wright, and Potel form a good nucleus 
for a strong tennis team. 

The D. K. held a private supper dance at the "Eagle" in Fall River on 
February 22nd. The brothers and their "lady friends" spent a most enjoy- 
able evening. 

The National Convention of the Delta Kappa Phi Fraternity will be held 
this year in New Bedford. Our local chapter will be host to delegates and 
members of the other chapters all over the East. The convention to which we 
all are looking forward will be held the latter part of May.

NEVER before in the history of Beta Chapter of Sigma Phi Tau have we 
enjoyed as active a year as the past one. With a larger number of active 
members, fraternity socials and routine business were assured success from the 
start. 

Although no large social affairs were run by our chapter itself, we have 
had a share of entertainments by cooperating with the chapter of Fall River. 
The dance this year was the most successful both socially and financially that 
our brotherhood has ever enjoyed. 

This season the annual Convention took place April 17- 20th in New 
York under the auspices of the Grand Council of New York. A real fine time, 
up-to-the-minute in its entertainment, was provided along with accompanying 
music by Smith Ballero and his snappy orchestra. The dance was held on a 
Saturday at the Savoy Plaza. 

With the election of new officers for the year 1931-1932, we expect 
another banner record for Sigma Phi Tau. 

We extend to the departing Seniors our sincere wishes for a successful 
and fruitful future.

One meeting was held this term. A lecture was given by Stanley San-

This film presented by the courtesy of the United States Rubber Com-

story of the rubber industry from the clearing of the jungle thicknesses to the 
putting of treads upon tires. 

The lecture and film were highly enjoyed by the few in attendance, but 
the poor showing of interest did not warrant more meetings of the same

SPIRIT 

ANY times throughout our varied careers will we hear the word "spirit", 
brought up. Spirit, and to be more exacting, School Spirit, is the one 
thing that makes that portion of the young men of the institution give their all 
for Alma Maters upon the athletic fields of today. 

Good support given any team, whether on field, court or floor, imbibes 
it with the one set ambition to do great things and so amass victories. Has it 
ever entered your head that perhaps better support from the inactive members 
of the class would increase the record wins of our teams? Is it not, at least, 
worth a try. Inspire your team by turning out in style to attend its matches 
or its social affairs, and by so doing show to all that although you may not be 
down upon that field of combat, you are there to help in the winning or 
losing of the games. Support makes 50 r /c of the victory! 

And, if the team comes out on the short end of a fine battle, bear with it, 
for any one can win, but it takes a real man to lose with a smile. 



"For when the one Great Scorer comes 
To write against your name, 

He writes not that you won or lost 
But how you played the game."

ATHLETICS 

r ro those who remembered the unbeatable soccer team of Textile in the 
1 years 1928-29, the falling off of its successes last year was in the nature 
of a disappointment. This year, however, with the advent of several players 
with the Freshman Class to aid the veterans of the past two seasons, a very 
successful team was fielded, which was returned the victor over all of its oppon- 
ents except one, namely. Vocational. This school with a fine team gave us 
our only defeat by a close 1-0 score and succeeded in holding us to a 2-2 draw 
in the return game. Among the victims of this fine Tech squad were num- 
bered Brown Frosh, Yale Frosh, Fitchburg Normal, and Durfee Textile. For 
the first time in its career the team defeated its rivals twice in the same season. 

In soccer Capt. Cook, Clarke, Dubiel, Reynolds, and Hotte are to be 
mentioned for their work. 

After soccer came basketball and many were the candidates out for a 
berth on the team. Much credit goes to Capt. Peirce, Preston Cook, Gon- 
salves, Clarke, and Galligan for making such a fine showing on the boards. 
Along towards the last of the season the team was well nigh unbeatable. 

In former years Tech used to have a Tennis team but the custom had re- 
cently fallen by the wayside. Last year, however, with a few good prospects 
in school a team was formed to see if the sport would go over, and with what 
measure of success. The Team composed of Capt. Cook, Wright, Peirce, Gard- 
.ner, Potel, Peters, and Poremba played five matches, and won four of them. 
Durfee Textile, Bryant-Stratton, R. I. School of Design, and Brown Frosh 
were our opponents. 

This year we have the same team back with the exception of Peters, and 
bid fair to be again the best unit in this part of the State in schoolboy circles. 
Incidentally the team takes on Harvard Varsity calibre players in one match, 
and it will be interesting to see how our boys stack up against college class 
opposition. 

Baseball was to have died a very easy death this year, but at the last min- 
ute some of the fellows wanting a team agreed to try and turn one out. In a 
short time, no doubt, we shall see Tech men out jogging complacently around 
the bases, while a mortified opponent tries to recover a ball well out of bounds 
in time to cut off another home run. Among the most likely candidates for 
berths on the Baseball nine are Stevens, Gardner, Mendrala, Dowd, Galligan, 
Clarke, McArdle and Stiles. 

In the selecting, training, and running of these teams it is to one or two 
individuals that most of the credit should go for the work that is done to put 



(79) 



THE FABRICATOR 1931 



a team onto the field or floor. To Mr. Fred Beardsworth as soccer coach 
goes most of the credit of the successful team. Also Manager Hotte stands 
forth for acknowledgment as the Manager who has to arrange all the games 
and provide various little things needed by a team. In basketball this year 
we have had an illustration of the work of still another new coach. Mr. 
Szulik has completed his work in fine shape and should be congratulated upon 
his team. To manager Poremba and assistant manager Dubiel also much of 
the team's credit is due. 

By their untiring efforts, Damon as manager of the Tennis team and 
Galligan as manager of the Baseball team, with the aid of our Athletic Com- 
mittee, Mr. Busby and Mr. Crompton, have succeeded in making up very fine 
schedules for their teams.

SOCCER 

TEXTILE is again proud to acclaim another highly successful soccer team 
this year. In defeating such teams as Yale Frosh, Brown Frosh, Fitchburg 
Normal, and Durfee Textile the eleven appeared to be as strong, if not stronger, 
than Tech's undefeated team of 28-29. Chief among the millmen's triumphs 
are the two defeats pinned upon our erstwhile rivals, Durfee Textile, marking 
the first time that the squad has been victorious over Fall River twice in one 
season. 

The man who deserves the most credit is our fine coach, Fred Beards- 
worth, who for the past three years has turned out teams capable of defeat- 
ing some of the strongest scholastic elevens in this part of the country. 

On offense and defense this past season the work of the team could not 
be excelled. The forward rank sank the ball in the netting 27 times while 
the defense held its opposing elevens to a mere 7 goals. Teamwork was one of 
the main factors in Tech's play this year which aided greatly in the scoring. 
Coach Beardsworth was fortunate in having several of last years men back 
and together with a group of likely looking Freshmen he molded his strong 
team. 



(81) 



THE FABRICATOR 1931 



Captain Cook, playing his third year for Textile at fullback, was out- 
standing on the defense throughout the season. Much credit should go to all 
the players who represented the school, a team which won seven and lost one. 
The following men made up Tech's lineup: — Capt. Cook, Everett Peirce, 
Joseph Dowd, George Hotte, Henry Reynolds, Mark Dubiel, George Gardner, 
Joseph Mello, William Clark, William McArdle, William Beetham, A. Durfee 
Damon, Buckles, Amaral, Warburton, Oldfield, Alfred Demarest, Potel. 

N. B. T. S. — N. B. H. S. 

New Bedford Textile soccer team took on the High School soccer eleven 
at Buttonwood park and after a game filled with rough work on the parts of 
both teams came off the victor by the score of 2-0. The work of Mello and 
Clarke on the forward rank was pretty to watch while Cook and Hotte were 
strong on defense. Mello garnered the first goal midway in the first half while 
Gardner put a fast one by Ames during the second period. 

N. B. T. S. — BROWN FROSH 

The team journeyed to Providence and played the Brown Freshmen at 
Aldrich Field. The Techmen outplayed their opponents in every department 
of the game, scoring the first goal thirty seconds after the kickoff by taking the 
ball directly down the field from the center and finally lodging it in the net 
after pretty combination play. Reynolds and Dubiel scored two apiece with 
Mello getting the other. Allen got the only marker for the college boys from 
the penalty spot. 

N. B. T. S. — FITCHBURG NORMAL 

Textile travelled to Fitchburg to play the Normal school team. In a 
game replete with mud and spoiled by huge seas of water on the field of 
play the Tech booters came home with their third straight victory in the bag 
by the score of 4-1. Reynolds opened the scoring for Tech twelve minutes 
after the opening whistle. Cook then followed by sinking a long free kick 
to make it the second goal of the half. In the second period Cook put in a 
penalty to make it three and Poremba came through with a fourth from close 
in to complete the scoring for New Bedford. In the last few minutes of play 
with several Tech substitutes in the lineup, 'Flash' Hammond a former Raffie 
star of Fall River broke away and put the only Fitchburg counter by Peirce. 
Cook and Clarke starred for Tech while Hammond was the best for the losers. 

N. B. T. S. — N. B. H. S. 

In another game with the High School the Textile boys showed con- 
clusively that they were away out of the class of their opponents by sinking 



(82) 



1931 THE FABRICATOR 



no less than seven goals to none for the opposition. The game was very one 
sided with the final issue never in doubt. In piling up the 7-0 score, Rey- 
nolds and Mello starred for Tex with Twarog and Souza best for N. B. H. S. 

N. B. T. S. — DURFEE TEXTILE 

Tech successfully surmounted the biggest obstacle in its path by defeating 
the Fall Riverites 2-1 on their own field. There is a saying that was not 
without substantion that a New Bedford soccer team can not win in Fall River. 
Nevertheless, the millmen went out to check this jinx and succeeded. New 
Bedford scored the first goal of the game and iurned the interval with a one 
goal lead. Midway through the second half LaPointe knocked the ball out 
of Peirce's hands into the net for the tieing tally. Not to be outdone Tech 
resumed play after the kickoff with beautiful combination work and it was 
not long before the break came. Reynolds took a long boot from Clark and 
from the center of the field by superb solo effort, broke through the whole 
Fall River defense to score the winner. 

N. B. T. S. — YALE FROSH 

In the sixth game of the season Textile defeated the Yale Frosh team at 
New Haven by the score of 2-1. Tech teamwork was the finest ever displayed 
but the forward wall had hard work locating the net after breaking through 
the Yale defense. The game was played in the college manner with quarters 
instead of halves. The first two quarters ended with a 0-0 score. In the third 
period Tech made it one up after fine passwork and soon after added another. 
Fawcett of Yale beat the N. B. goalie for the only counter for the college. 
Reynolds and Mello were the scorers for Tech. Both the offense and the de- 
fense displayed perfect work for Textile. The defense especially broke up all 
combined efforts of the Yale forwards to break through while the offense kept 
the ball up near its opponent's goalmouth for the better part of the game. 

N. B. T. S. — VOCATIONAL 

The soccer team representing the Vocational school ended our winning 
streak of six straight by scoring the lone tally of a hot and fast game at Battery 
Park to nose out winners. It was a heartbreaking defeat which marred an 
otherwise perfect record. Tech started off fast and brought the ball down the 
field time and time again in rapid succession. Repeated shots for the goal, 
all labelled, were stopped or turned away in a sensational manner by Merrick 
the Voke goalie. Midway in the first half the forward line of the Trade 
school broke away and I. Tripp caught Peirce unawares to send a sizzler by 
him into the upper corner of the net, from outside the penalty area for the 



(83) 



THE FABRICATOR 193 1 



only tally. In the second half Tech had much the better of the play but all 
shots were either stopped or deflected by goalie or goal posts to keep the ball out 
of the cage. Cook and Buckles formed a fine defense for N. B. while Bates 
starred for Vocation. 




N. B. T. S. — DURFEE TEXTIL 

In the return game between these two rivals, Durfee was no match for 
the fast team play of the N. B. millmen, who smarting after their unexpected 
and heartbreaking setback at the hands of Vocational, put two goals through 
the Fall River defense and kept the opponents from even approaching the Tech 
goalmouth. Dubiel and Reynolds collected the counters for New Bedford 
while Franco was ever a danger to be watched carefully. "Billy" Beetham 
playing his first game for N. B. put up an excellent exhibition and aided the 
defense in repelling the Durfee attacks. 




N. B. T. S. — VOCATIO 



In the final game of its season and the return contest with the Trade 
school, the Textile eleven were unable to get more than an even break although 
they played far better soccer than their opponents. Textile was out to avenge 
the only defeat suffered at the hands of Vocational and played hard fast soc- 
cer to keep in the lead to almost the final whistle. Eleven minutes after play 
started Dowd connected with the ball and all that was left for the Voke goalie 
was to pick it out of the netting. Bates collected a penalty to tie the score 
before half time was called. In the second period Mello broke through to 
break the deadlock and put Tech one up. The game seesawed back and forth 
on even terms for the remainder of time, but a very few minutes from time, 
Tripp, taking a pass from his wingman, beat McArdle with a first time shot 
to knot the count. The final whistle blew right after to end Textile's hopes 
of victory.

BASKETBALL 

N. B. T. S. — BRYANT-STRATTON 

TEXTILE opened its season at the Tech gym opposing the Bryant-Stratton 
quintet of Providence. The business team displayed excellent teamwork, 
having played together for several games before meeting our team. Tech out- 
played the visitors throughout the periods but due to unnecessary fouling in 
the final quarter, the Providence team gained a lead and won out by a single 
point. Crawford and Cook were the stars for their respective teams. Craw- 
ford scored 15 points and Cook 14 points to lead the scorers. The final 
score was 34 to 33. 

N. B. T. S. — NORTHEASTERN 

Textile traveled to Boston to play the strong Northeastern University 
quintet. Tech played all around the second stringers who started the game 
and they were quickly withdrawn, giving place to the college first team. 
Tiffany and Symanski, who are rated among the best forward combinations in 
college basketball, were tied up in the first half which ended with the engineers 
leading by nine points. In the second half the Boston team resorted to long 



(85) 



THE FABRICATOR 1931 



shots to run up a large lead before the end. The final score was 49 to 26. 
Tiffany and Gonsalves were the sharpshooters for the teams with 1 7 points 
for the college boy and 8 points for Gonsalves. 

N. B. T. S. — MIDDLESEX PRE-MED. 

Tech dropped its third game of the season to the Middlesex Pre-Medical 
School at Boston by the score of 45 to 31. The game was played on a small 
box like floor with an extremely low ceiling. Both teams had a difficult job 
to penetrate their opponents defense and were forced to long shots. The 
medicos had the better of this type of play as Kolb, Minsky, and Arthurs 
dropped in seven baskets apiece. Gonsalves again displayed his shooting eye 
by sinking 1 1 points for the millmen. 

N. B. T. S. — LOWELL TEXTILE 

Lowell Textile trounced the New Bedford millmen by a score of 52 to 
18. The flashy pass work and accurate shooting of a very large Lowell team 
completely baffled the N. B. Techmen as did the fact of playing to baskets 
fastened onto brick walls handicap our boys. Cook was high scorer for New 
Bedford with 8 points while Jarek and Savard scored 17 points apiece for 
Lowell. 

N. B. T. S. — VOCATIONAL 

Textile playing their second home game of the season defeated Vocational 
School 20 to 15 for their first victory. The Vokes started off fast gaining a 
five point lead by the end of the first half. In the second half the millmen 
passed all around their opponents to outscore them by ten points in this per- 
iod. Cook and Magasz were the high scorers of the game with 6 points apiece. 

N. B. T. S. — MASS. AGGIE 

Tech traveled to Amherst to play the M. A. C. team. The Aggies 
boasted one of the strongest teams in New England, having defeated several 
strong college quintets before meeting Textile. The millmen displayed an 
excellent defense but weakness on the offense in shooting and breaking proved 
their downfall. The Aggies won out in a hard fought and low scoring game 
by the tune of 24 to 9. Stanisieski flashy forward of the M. A. C. team was 
the shining light with 9 points. 

N. B. T. S. — BECKER COLLEGE 

The Millmen received their sixth setback of the season at the hands of 
Becker College of Worcester. The score was 36 to 23. Minus the services 



(86) 



1931 THE FABRICATOR 



of three regulars, Peirce, Gonsalves, and Mello the Tex team played hard on 
the oversize floor but could not overcome a lead procured early in the game 
by the business school quintet. Cook was high scorer for Tech with 7 points 
and O'Malley lead the Becker boys with 9 points. 

N. B. T. S. — DURFEE TEXTILE 

Durfee Textile came over to New Bedford for the first meeting of the 
annual clashes of those two great rivals. The Fall River team was out for 
victory to avenge the two defeats administered to their soccer team by the New 
Bedford eleven. The Durfee millmen displayed some excellent basketball in 
the first half maintaining a fair lead throughout. In the second half with a 
changed lineup by Coach Szulik, New Bedford began to click and pro- 
ceed to go through the Durfee defense at will to score from all angles. The 
final score was 38 to 24 in Textile's favor. Captain "Red" Peirce and Cap- 
tain "Pete" Pepka were the high lights for their respective quintets, with Peirce 
garnering 5 fields and 5 fouls for 15 points and Pepka sunk 5 fields and 3 
fouls. The Textile Seconds defeated the Durfee Seconds by 39 to 3. 

N. B. T. S. — VOCATIONAL 

Vocational fell again before the swift and sure attack of the revamped 
Textile quintet in the return game between these two teams. Vocational in- 
clined to hold the ball in their own backcourt and wait for breaks in the 
millmen's defense found the Tex team well nigh impenetrable. On the other 
hand the Tech boys were displaying excellent fast passwork and brought the 
ball down with ease to chalk up a 34 to 16 score and another win. Galligan, 
Clark, and Peirce were the leading scorers for Textile with five baskets apiece, 
while Martin was high for the Trade school with 6 points. 

N. B. T. S. — MIDDLESEX 

Middlesex Pre-Medical College quintet came down to New Bedford ex- 
pecting another win to their string of nine straight. They found a renovated 
opponent in Tech and went down in the second half of a fast battle 34 to 20. 
The "doctors" had quite a lead at the end of the first half but the continual 
attack and speed of play put up by the home team soon wore them down and 
they went back to Boston with their first defeat. Mello was the star with 1 3 
points. 

N. B. T. S. — BRYANT STRATTON 

The Bryant Stratton team of Providence duplicated their one point win 
over the millmen again at the Eagles Flail in Providence by the close score 



(87) 



THE FABRICATOR 1931 



of 33 to 32. Visiting teams are very seldom the victors on the business teams 
home floor because of the slippery waxed surface and the poor officiating of 
one of the students of the school who referees all of their games. The Tech- 
men, however, outplayed their opponents but had a hard time in keeping their 
feet on the floor with the result that the B. S. forwards broke through to a 
close victory. Collision, a former Rhode Island State College athlete and Captain 
Crawford were the sharpshooters for the Providence team with 1 2 points each, 
while Galligan lead Textile with 8 points. 

N. B. T. S. — R. I. SCHOOL OF EDUCATION 

Rhode Island School of Education proved to be Tech's next victim being 
trounced on their own floor by the score of 32 to 14. The millmen out- 
played the Providence team in every department of the game and would have 
had a much larger score to show if a little luck on shooting had been enjoyed. 
The Tech reserves were in the game a great part of the time during which 
they held the Normal school about even. Peirce dropped in shots from all 
angles to score 14 points while Gibbon was the best for the Rhode Islanders 
with 6 points. 

N. B. T. S. — DURFEE TEXTILE 

New Bedford Textile defeated the Durfee Textile team for the second 
time of the season by the score of 38 to 28. N. B. ran up a lead of eight 
points in the first quarter and were content to hold this lead throughout the 
contest. Tech took the ball up the floor slowly with fast breaks under the 
hoop to make every shot count as the Durfee offense was deadly when in pos- 
session. Clarke was outstanding for Textile with 13 points with Pepka of 
Durfee close behind with 12 points. 

The N. B. Textile Seconds won out by 3 points in a close game. 

N. B. T. S. — R. I. SCHOOL OF EDUCATION 

Tech ended their successful season in a very appropriate manner by 
swamping the Rhode Island College of Education by a score of 47 to 25. The 
Techmen needed 1 8 points to outscore their opponents record for the season. 
They successfully managed to outscore the "Teachers" by 22 points to gain a 
lead of five points in scores recorded for the team against the score of opposing 
teams. The millmen again displayed the excellent passwork that marked their 
last nine games and baffled the Rhode Island school completely. Clarke went 
on a rampage to set a scoring record for the season with 18 points. Scott 
collected 9 points for the visitors.

Anecdotes of the Various Trips 

Rain at the game but sunshine in the dorms of the Fitchburg Normal 
School for some of the gang. 

We still wonder why Hottc, Wright, and company staggered around 
so much in the Yale game after a night of sound sleep. 

Who remembers that train chasing us all the way to Worcester? 

Reds are well appreciated at Lowell and one of the Tech team should 
charge chauffeur wages. 

Why was Mac so bashful about going into a dinning room at M. A. C 

Gonsalves still contends that we should have stayed beside that window 
without the curtain for the rest of a show. 

Billy Clarke tried so hard to get a goal in the Normal game that the 
cold shoulder turned upon his poor efforts almost broke his heart. Oh, Yes? 

There was a great deal of disappointment in certain quarters over the 
missing dance at Bryant-Stratton. How about it Joe? 

The fellow who told Preston Cook about the shot cut up to Amherst 
must have been nursing a grudge. 

Billy Clarke sure did go to a lot of trouble to have a certain young lady 
wait on him. 

Red Pierce's wind blown bob reminded one of a forest fire. 

Those chasers up at Lowell proved to be something stronger than ginger 
ale, ask Stan and Gal for further particulars. 

We noticed that Grappler McArdle chose a bed near the window, we 
think he needed room to park his dogs; therefore why not hang them out of 
the window. 

We wonder if Joe Mello is still corresponding with a certain femme, up 
in Southbridge. 

Johnny Gonsalves didn't get a great deal of sleep up at Lowell when he 
shared his room with Galligan, Mello and Szulik. 

Al Poremba will have to brush up on the art of chiseling if he thinks he 
can convince Szulik that he didn't owe him money for meals at M. A. C. 

We wonder where Red Wright and Yorkie went after the dance up at 
Lowell, they were pretty cozey. 

The waiter at the lunchcart in Woonsocket must have wondered why 
all our fellows went out the back door of the cart, but nevertheless we enjoyed 
the soda water. 

Our opponents saw red plenty this year when Wright and Peirce were 
in the game together. 

The kids at Lowell Tech recognized Pete Warburton from last years 
game and commenced to call him Piccolo. 

We felt sorry for one guy up at Lowell, he bet his friend two bucks that 
we wouldn't lose by more than 30 points.

TENNIS 

IN previous years up to approximately 1927 the New Bedford Textile School 
had turned out some fine tennis teams to carry forth its standards and 
spirit of battle to the supremacy of the courts. Last year through the work 
of Friedberg and Cook a very fine team was drafted which won four out of 
five matches and was barely nosed out in that fifth. Among its opponents 
were Bryant-Stratton, R. I. School of Design, Durfee Textile and Brown 
Freshmen. 

N. B. T. S. — R. I. SCHOOL OF DESIGN 

The Textile tennis started its season by administering a 6-0 shutout on 
the R. I. School of Design racquet wielders at Brooklawn Park. 



N. B. T. S. 



DURFEE TEXTILE 



Taking on its traditional rivals in this new sport the Textile netmen won 
out by the scores of 6-1. The doubles match of Peters-Poremba was the only 
match dropped. 



(91) 



THE FABRICATOR 1931 



N. B. T. S. — BRYANT-STRATTON 

Tech defeated Bryant-Stratton College twice in succession, once in New 
Bedford 6-0, and the second time in Providence by 6-1. The second match 
played at Roger Williams Park was enjoyed immensely by the team as the 
courts were in fine condition. 



N. B. T. S. — BROWN FROSH 

Playing upon the Brown College courts at Providence the tennis team 
of Textile met with its first setback by being nosed out by the odd match in 
seven by Brown Freshmen. The courts were excellent for fast tennis and 
same sparkling matches were in progress before the afternoon was very far 
advanced. All the singles matches with the exception of Capt. Cook were 
lost to the Brown team giving them an early lead of 4-1. However, the two 
doubles matches were taken by Tech to make the final score 4-3 in favor of 
the college team. 

It is yet too early to know the outcome of the matches to be played this 
year but it is safe to say that with the very same team back to compete again 
this term the chances of having a championship squad are excellent. This 
season under the expert regime of Manager A. Durfee Damon the team will 
have another very complete schedule, and incidentally step out of its class to 
meet the Harvard Varsity racqueteers at Cambridge. The outcome of this 
match will be watched with interest as it marks the first time that Tech tennis 
teams have pitted their skill and strength of arm against college varsity material. 

A tournament to determine those eligible to make the team was run off 
and from exhibitions of some few upon the local courts the chances for a 
winning team look good.

DESIGNING 

Every thread of the most elaborate de- 
sign in a textile fabric is carefully planned 
before a shuttle moves. Nothing is wov- 
en in which is not the result of careful 
designing. 

So too, the 



WYANDOTTE 



are the result of the most scientific and 
careful processes, for nothing goes into 
these materials but which practical ex- 
perience based on many years study of 
textile problems, has proved successful. 

It is not surprising that these special 
alkalies are gaining favor every day in 
textile plants the country over.

COLOR 

Never has color had the power to in- 
fluence sales as it does today. More cloth- 
ing, more textile fabrics for use in the 
home are being sold simply because color 
has a universal sales appeal. 

Manufacturers in the textile field are 
aware not only of the rapidly growing 
demand among consumers for color but 
colors which are fast. 

Du Pont dyes are available which satis- 
factorily fill this requirement, dyes which 
impart to textile fabrics the enduring color 
qualities the public is being taught to 
expect.
